One company - two informational services
InfoQ & QCon

Software is changing the world. In 2006, Floyd Marinescu, together with Roxanne Beverstein, and Alex Popescu, saw a need for unbiased content and information in the enterprise development community. That's where we - with your help - stepped in. With a mission and passion for empowering developers, we founded C4Media to build a "community of communities created by the community and for the community.
